Subject: Safe?? This is Propaganda LIES...
There is no such thing as a safe abortion. In every abortion there is a life killed, many women go through the rest of their life being depressed and emotionally torn because of the fact that they did kill their baby, and some women still die while in the process of having an abortion. Abortions just aren't safe. Just type 'died during abortion' into GOOGLE, and there are almost 13 MILLION results because of botched abortions, where the mother dies, along with the baby.

Abstinence is the safest way, and adoptions are also another 'safe' option. Abortions should still be illegal, except for when the mother's life is endangered, which is well under 1% of the time. Rapes are another excuse for keeping abortions legal, even though those are also less that 1% of the time. The truth is, abortions are legal out of convenience for those 99% who didn't want to keep their pants on... and used as another form of birth control. Abortion is not health care for the mother... and it's a holocaust for 60+ MILLION innocent babies (in the U.S. alone) that are conceived, are alive, and then torn apart, limb by limb, by abortionists, and thrown in the trash can.

Abortions should never be used as birth control, and should never be considered as health care, since at least one life is ALWAYS taken.

As I type this, I'm reminded of when Steven Tyler, the lead singer for Aerosmith, forced his girlfriend, Julia Holcomb, to have an abortion while she was in the hospital after almost losing her life in a house fire. The saline abortion FAILED, but Tyler proceeded to have his baby son killed OUTSIDE the womb, which he continues to not tell the truth to what actually happened (watch the YouTube video: watch?v=ga2ETgekOgg). Such people are worse than the most rabid animal.

The only people who come out ahead in the deal, are the abortionists who make MILLION$ of dollar$ each year from killing babies. Judgment Day is still coming, though.

Subject: For The Young Women
For those young women today who are not aware of the issues faced by women back then.

Latina women especially need to know, and need to understand how important the right to choose is.
